Terence Jansen Van Vuuren, owner and founder of Terenzo Hairdressing International, is no ordinary hairdresser. Driven by the motto ‘never stop learning’, Terence has dedicated his life to changing the lives of others with his magical wand. Having studied hairdressing for three years, mostly in England, Terenzo went on to open Terenzo Salon in 1993. Since then, his business and his career have gone from strength to strength. Terence’s unique approach to cutting techniques and colour application is what distinguishes him from his peers and certifies him as a ‘master extraordinaire’ at the forefront of the art of hairdressing. He has many feathers in his cap including having won the coveted Colour Trophy Award – the longest running hairdressing event in the world. Terence’s international career took off when he was chosen to be part of an incredible international team of ambassadors for L’Oreal Professional and was one of 40 artists chosen worldwide, travelling and representing the brand all around the world. “I like to play with textures. People immediately think that texture means a lot of pieces, but even a smooth look is a texture. A bob with a smooth surface is texture,” says Terenzo. “I am driven by artistic energy, and have always thought laterally, taking the obvious and by adding a simple twist creating a new concept, which leaves an indelible mark on the world of hair. I have worked with some of the world’s leading talents and in turn have trained some of hairdressing’s most skilled stylists. Today, I continue being a brand custodian and spreading my love and passion for the profession and brand wherever I travel, inspiring other hairdressing professionals to do the same.”
Subsequently Terenzo International Hairdressing Professionals have created a large client following through hard work and dedication and later built up a brand of epic brand custodians over the years. Terenzo’s dynamic and creative hairdressing group has expanded and Terence – together with his talented team – now operates out of three branches based in Johannesburg and Cape Town, where they are continuously evolving creatively and standing at the forefront of style innovation.
